You are here: Parents » Learn to swim this summer
Swimming is lots of fun for people of all ages and children especially love getting in the water and enjoying themselves.
But it is not just fun, swimming also provides loads of health benefits which can help to keep your children healthy and happy at the same time:
Swimming keeps your child’s heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina and even improves balance and posture
Another great thing about swimming is that children of any age or ability can take part and it is more accessible for children with additional needs than almost any other sport.
Swimming provides challenges and rewards accomplishments, which helps children to become self-confident and believe in their abilities
Your child will have plenty of opportunities to make friends and grow in confidence
But health, fun, and confidence are not the only reasons why your child should learn to swim. Learning to swim also opens up the door to a range of other activities.
A few sports your child can only do if they can swim
Learning to swim is a skill that once learnt is rarely forgotten and it is open to people of all ages. There are even swimming events for people over 100, and a few Masters swimmers who are still swimming past this age.
Year 5 pupils have the opportunity to go swimming, once a week, for a term during school time. As we all know, developing any skill and ability needs to be something that is practised and rehearsed regularly!
There are a number of locations for swimming sessions in the local area, here is just one of those available. How about a splash about to get out of the heat this summer, and practise that essential skill at the same time?!
